I did my undergraduate in Physics at the University of Florence (Italy) and received the Diploma and PhD degree in Physics in 1993 and 1997. From 1997 to 1999 I was Assistant Research Professor at the Technical University of Denmark. From September 2004 I moved to Cardiff University to start new research in Biophotonics. In 2007 I was promoted to Reader and in 2011 to a Personal Chair.
I obtained a PhD from Stanford in 2002 (with J. P. Collman) for work on metalloporphyrins as oxygen reduction electrocatalysts, and a Postdoctorate at Harvard with G. Whitesides working on unconventional forms of microfabrication and energy conversions.
Andrew's main responsibility is to lead EPSRC's strategic interactions with key partners within the university, business, regional and international sectors to ensure the successful implementation of the EPSRC Delivery Plan and the contribution this brings to the wider objectives of UKRI.
Professor Veronica Bowman is a senior principal statistician at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and is internationally recognised as the lead technical expert for Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) knowledge management. She specialises in uncertainty calculation and communication and Bayesian inference. In particular, she has spent many years applying Bayesian methodology and data fusion techniques to problems in the military domain as well as working with academia to improve understanding of how uncertainty is propagated and how decisions should be taken under uncertainty. She was the founder and chair of the Calculating and Communicating Uncertainty Conference (CCU 2015), which bought together leading researchers from the field of uncertainty and instigated the EPSRC funded research into decision making under uncertainty.
Jack is currently a non-executive director of FTSE companies Mitie plc and TT Electronics plc, and until recently Laird plc. He is a Council Member of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and on the Board of the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials. He recently co-chaired the UK Advanced Materials Leadership Council at the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. He is a serial entrepreneur and previously chaired advanced materials company Ilika plc which he took from a spin-out to the AIM market. He was awarded an OBE in 2015 for services to Science and Engineering. He holds degrees from Stanford University, the London School of Economics and Insead.
Imperial College London
I am the Professor of Chemical Physics at Imperial College London. I was awarded an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship in 2011, and since 2012 I have also been Adjunct Professor of Computational Chemistry at NTNU. I am Committee Member of the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group and Council Member of the Faraday Division.
I am a lecturer in geotechnical (ground) engineering. I want to find the best way to assess, preserve and strengthen our ageing transport infrastructure, so that it is fit for purpose in the 21st Century. I have undertaken field investigations, laboratory modelling and numerical simulations to better understand the behaviour of old (mainly Victorian) railway embankments, retaining walls and historic buildings.
Dr. Alexandra Brintrup is Lecturer in Digital Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge’s Engineering Department and is leading the Manufacturing Analytics Research within the Institute for Manufacturing.
I completed an MEng in Engineering Science at Oxford University (1995), a MSc in Climate Change and Sustainability (2009), and a PhD in Energy/ecological economics (2015). Following a postdoctoral position at the University of Leeds (2015-2018), I have now taken up an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship at the University of Leeds (2018-2023).
Anju Brooker is Principal Scientist at Procter & Gamble company with 25 years experience in development of surfactants, polymers, nanotechnologies and multiple assignments in product development in the Fabric and Home Care categories.
I have travelled the world pursuing my mathematics career - after growing up in northern Australia, I studied at the Australian National University, MIT, and the University of Vienna. I held postdoctoral positions in Bristol and Kobe, and then was awarded my EPSRC fellowship, allowing me to return to the UK.
I graduated from University College London with a first in Mathematics, followed by a PhD with Matt Keeling at the University of Warwick. After two postdoctoral positions at Harvard and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I took up my fellowship at the University of Cambridge.
Jethro Browell is a Research Fellow at the University of Strathclyde's Institute for Energy and Environment where his research interests span all aspects of energy forecasting and associated decision-making in electricity markets and power system operation.
Alan has worked as a medicinal chemist for over 24 years and has been involved in the discovery of multiple clinical development candidates in several therapeutic areas including pain, cardiovascular, allergy and respiratory, urogenital and sexual health and has also been involved in the discovery of candidates in several non-traditional areas of chemistry such as synthetic vaccines.
I was awarded a PhD from the University of Nottingham in 1988 and continued there as an industrial researcher until 1994. I worked as a Software Engineer until 2009, when I returned to the Composites Research Group at the University of Nottingham as a Research Fellow.
David Bull holds the Chair in Signal Processing at the University of Bristol. His previous roles include Lecturer with the University of Wales, Cardiff, and Systems Engineer with Rolls Royce.
James received his PhD in 2007 from University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Prof Ley then spent two years at Université de Montréal with Professor Charette. In 2009 he joined Imperial College London as a Ramsay Memorial Research Fellow and in 2011 was awarded an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellowship.
Alison has over 30 years of experience in electronic engineering and semiconductor design, particularly in the field of ultra-low power wireless communication for medical applications.
Professor Edmund Burke joined the University of Leicester as Deputy Vice-Chancellor in July 2018. Before that, he had been the Vice-Principal for Science and Engineering at Queen Mary University of London since 2015.
